The latest InsiderAdvantage/WSB-TV poll is out and GOP gubernatorial candidate Nathan Deal has widened his lead over Democrat Roy Barnes once again:
An InsiderAdvantage/WSB-TV poll conducted in the race to be Georgia’s next governor showed Republican Nathan Deal has regained a substantial lead over Democrat Roy Barnes.
The poll shows Deal leading by eight points just ten days after a poll showed Deal and Barnes deadlocked. Voters were asked if the election to determine the governor of Georgia were held today, which candidate would they vote for?
The results showed former former Rep. Deal with 45 percent and former Governor Barnes with 37 percent. Libertarian candidate John Monds remained at 5 percent.
Thirteen percent are still undecided, a number that grew slightly from the last survey. The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.
The general election will take place Nov. 2.
A second poll by InsiderAdvantage found Johnny Isakson growing his lead in the United States Senate race over Michael Thurmond.
Isakson, a first-term senator, polled at 61 percent while Thurmond, who is Georgia’s labor commissioner, dropped to 29 percent.
Chuck Donovan, the Libertarian candidate, received 3 percent with 7 percent of voters undecided. The margin of error in the poll was also plus or minus 5 percent.
